Hi! I'm Robyn Potter, the creator and owner of Chocswirl Cakes. I specialise in wedding and celebration cake design and it is my firm belief that cake needs to taste as good as it looks! I strive for neatness and precision in every design and love the romantic elegance of a wedding cake, as well as the quirkey sense of fun that a themed novelty cake can bring.
My journey into the world of cake design began about 6 years ago when I decided to take a leap of faith and make my passion into my daily bread. While studying for a Diploma in Patisserie at culinary school I landed a part time work experience position at a leading wedding cake designer, Vanilla House Patisserie, working under Angie Boyd. Working my way up under her guidance, I stayed on after completing my studies and cemented my passion for all things cake.
At the Good Food and Wine Show in 2012 I had the privilege of teaming up with Angie to compete for the title of the 'Cape Boss'. We met Buddy Valastro, the Cake Boss himself, as he judged our cake to be the winning one and we took home the title!
Nearly four years into this amazing journey I decided to take my second leap of faith and venture out on my own. Chocswirl Cakes was born. We are based in Durbanville, Western Cape.
Along with our wedding cakes we offer cupcakes, mini-cakes, iced cookies and a variety of sweet treats for dessert tables.
I invite you to join us on this sweet journey!
